Things to do in Cheshire

With so much to see and do, it’s tough to narrow the list down! But if you’re new to the area and are curious as to what the top things to do in Cheshire are, this is a great place to start.

  1. Discover Capesthorne Hall

    A stunning historic venue, Capesthorne Hall is a tranquil haven of wildlife, parkland and formal gardens ripe for exploration. The gardens boast colourful herbaceous borders filled with a rich array of perennials. Visitors can also enjoy a small rose arbour, rhododendron woods and walks leading to an arboretum.

  2. Visit Tabley House

    A former stately home, Tabley House is a designated Grade I listed building. It was designed by John Carr of York for Sir Peter Byrne Leicester, Bt., and completed in 1767. His son, Sir John Fleming Leicester, was the first great patron and collector of British paintings. He assembled a splendid collection at Tabley, ultimately with the intention of establishing a National Gallery of British Art.

    Today, you can soak up the history by touring the house, art and furniture collections, and more.
